After nothing but bashing the coaching staff since the regular season ended, Cowboys Nation now has something to be excited about on the sidelines.

On Monday, several reports indicated that they have reached an agreement with former Seahawks Defensive Coordinator Kris Richard to be the teams passing coordinator and defensive backs coach.

Richard was an NFL cornerback himself for 5 seasons and has been an associate in Seattle for the last 8 years (the previous three as defensive coordinator). Most well known for shaping and overseeing the “Legion of Boom” secondary and helping them reach back-to-back Super Bowls in 2013 and 2014, winning dominantly in 2013 over the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos. Dallas also did not retain their secondary coach Joe Baker’s expiring contract.

But there is very possibly some deeper implications to this coaching accusation. Specifically looking at Earl Thomas and his adamant desire to be a Dallas Cowboy. Many believe that he will follow Richard to Dallas when his contract expires. Or this could just be the Cowboys wanting to lure him in. We never know. Maybe this could set Thomas off in Seattle and he requests a trade now. Regardless, there isn’t a way this signing hurts the Cowboys.
